Pop Quiz: Does Your Body Need a Hot Tub?

We all have times when life feels out of balance. You want to be your best at home and at work, but sometimes the pressure builds and you wish you could take some time to just “be".

Enter the power of warm water and massage. With a hot tub at home, your personal pause button is never far away. It’s a place where you can take a break from your lists and obligations - free of devices and distractions - and be fully mindful and present. Where you can immerse yourself in a wellness ritual that refreshes and transforms your mind, body, and spirit.

This raises the question, “Do I really need a hot tub to help me feel better, connect better, and be better?" Let’s find out!

Determine if any of the following questions ring true. Check all boxes that apply to you and see how things add up at the end.

By the end of the day I’m exhausted but can’t seem to calm down. I need to bring more pleasure into my day when my body won’t let me.

Adrenaline has been pumping through your veins all day. No wonder you have a hard time calming down. Stress puts your body in a state of high alert. A looming deadline or a fight with your spouse can trigger the same fight-or-flight reflex you’d experience if you were being chased by a tiger! It’s hard to convince your body to lighten up. Research shows that immersing yourself in the warm water of a hot tub can lower your heart rate and decrease blood pressure. All you have to do is sit back and let the tensions of the day clear away. Hydrotherapy benefits many systems in the body and promotes heart health, relaxation and overall well-being.

My job is very physically demanding. I get a workout at work. My body needs to rejuvenate so I can be the best I can be.

If you’ve got a job that demands more from you than the gym, hot tub hydrotherapy can help. Like any athlete that demands a lot from their body, protecting yours is essential. Research tells us that pain and soreness can be helped by warm spa water. Warm spa water increases circulation that brings healing to micro-traumas caused by physical exertion. It also lowers plasma lactate that causes muscle soreness. Using a hot tub to help your muscles recover from daily activities is a daily ritual that will help you feel better and perform better when you’re out of the tub.

I have a lot on my mind all the time. I’m looking for something that helps quiet my mind AND soothe my body.

Mindfulness practices like yoga and meditation can be life-changing, but some people need help to let go and be fully present. Hot tub hydrotherapy allows you to redirect your thoughts by introducing alternate forms of stimulation. As you slip into the comfort of warm water your body senses a change. Feelings of well-being and relaxation deepen as the jets pulsate against your sore muscles. The sound of the bubbles and hum of the filtration system create soothing white noise that quiets the chatter in your head. You might find it easier to practice meditation in the hot tub, to let go and focus your thoughts on your breathing. Time spent in a hot tub is a full-sensory experience designed to unburden your mind and body, helping you feel better, and preparing you for a good night's sleep.

I feel like my days all run together into one big stressful experience. I need to create a shift to bring more balance into my life.

Hot tub hydrotherapy serves as a personal reset button that helps you start fresh. Schedule time in the morning or evening. We recommend both! Committing to a twice daily ritual of hydrotherapy can make a huge difference in your physical, mental, and emotional wellness. It just takes 20 minutes for the warm water to work it’s magic. That’s time well spent. Like with any new behavior allow yourself 21 days to learn the new routine. Remember, assuring yourself a reset on your day helps you step off the stressful merry-go-round.


It’s time to tally your score. Based on the number of boxes you checked your mind and body are telling you the following:

  1. You are in the zone. A hot tub is a great place to help everyone in your family connect and refresh.
  2. You could use some hot tub relief to manage stress and be your best.
  3. The probability of improving your health and well being through hot tub hydrotherapy is high.
  4. Your mind and body’s need to refresh and rejuvenate via hot tub hydrotherapy is being communicated loud and clear.
  5. You need to make self-care a priority. For the sake of your mind and body, explore the benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy as soon as possible.

When all is said and done, your positive, mindful state of mind is up to you. Make today the day you commit to a daily wellness ritual to create renewed, improved health with hot tub hydrotherapy.
